Congratulations to the winner of the topology challenge!

Meraki Alumni (Retired)

Thanks to everyone who entered our awful topology community challenge. As it turns out, this challenge only managed to elicit two entries — it looks like the topology was a bit too terrible to try and save (noted!). 


Those two entries, however, each offered excellent ideas for tackling this topology. @vassallon's entry proposed we "kill it with fire" and @PhilipDAth's entry proposed a series of prudent swaps and optimizations. 


After a brief period of deliberation, the Meraki panel of judges determined PhilipDAth's to be the superior entry!

Here's what our panel had to say:


Awesome topology! Definitely hit a lot of the major issues that were plaguing the original topology. The branches have been cleaned up to have a more appropriate amount of wireless APs. The HQ has been reorganized to be properly redundant and servers, phones, and APs have been properly sectioned off into their own redundant layers. All three sites are structured in a much more device efficient manner.




🎉Congratulations, PhiliDAth!!🎉
